A shoe is one or more materials which combine and interplay with one another to surround all or part of the foot to serve one or more of the following purposes:
- Hygienic (prevent spread)
- Representative of belief or attitude eg. religion, rights
- Self Expression
Shoes have always been the bi-product of a human movement, attitude or belief. Their construction and design has always been affected in some way by the current social and economic influences.
A shoe is always in the eye of the beholder. As an aspiring footwear designer, how far we can push the envelop of this definition? I feel as though challenging the perceived definition of a shoe will definitely stand out as something new, something different and something exciting.
